    Still need another lefty for pen

    Any ideas on who may be a good fit to ad a second lefty to the pen, with Chapman moving to rotation? Thought Gonzalez would be a good fit, but Walt must look else where. Any free agents available or teams with depth that may trade?

    Arredondo is pretty much the 2nd lefty. Our 40 man is full, no one is removable. Rolen still might need a spot during ST and our bullpen depth is great. Plus they could use Cingrani if need be. I wanted a LH as well, just do not see it happening.. Not to mention I see Chapman being put on the "Kris Medlen" plan this year, he will be in the pen until mid season, then moved to the rotation.

    JP Howell is the best available LH RP on the market. The Nats are pursuing him hard, though. I'm unsure who else there is. Rafael Perez?

    THIS... Arredondo has gotten lefties out at a better clip than Gonzalez (or Howell for that matter) for their respective careers.

    How about Joe Thatcher of SD? Shouldn't cost much more than a right handed reliever. Would love to see him pitch closer to home. He is from Kokomo, IN.

    I think that is what they will do with Chapman also. At mid-season, you could replace him with Cingrani and not miss a beat AND not stunt either of them developmentally.
